Just back from a great stay in the grain store barn! The barn was of very high quality, clean and we immediately felt settled and comfortable. The barn was lovely and warm on arrival which was great as it was a very stormy night. The location and parking was a real bonus and it was close enough to the main town but far enough away to feel in the countryside. Will def be back for another stay soon!

We chose Weston Sands over the Easter holiday for a family gathering for 12 people and booked The Grain Store, Sands View and The Studio. The properties were just lovely and suited us all - we loved the views with sheep and lambs, especially looking from the gallery area with a quiet cup of tea! The temperatures outside were -2 at night but the houses were warm and cosy all day and night, and we really appreciated being able to adjust the heating in individual areas of each house. Debbie popped in soon after our arrival to check we had everything and was available by phone if we needed to contact her. Plenty of everything - towels, crockery etc, and the DVD'S were a nice touch - my nieces had a chick flick evening and watched 3 back to back! One of the nice things about these cottages was that we were close enough to share breakfasts and dinner, but there was enough space for people to also do their own thing, Oh and the WiFi was a real bonus for the teenagers!
Nice and close to Stratford, but with nice walks from the houses with a fantastic local pub on route.
Weston Sands provided us with a most welcoming home from home facility in which to enjoy a family get together. Many thanks Weston Sands.

We have summer the whole year in Singapore and very concern with the cold weather. However, the rooms and even corridor have heaters and we were adequately warm.
My wife simply loved the kitchen as there were knives, pots, and all essential utensils.
The owners were really house proud and we were careful to make sure that the place is kept in good order.
We viewed the other units and they were all nicely designed and looked very comfortable.

Room Tip: You need a car.

Need of a good clean really and more cloths,dustpans etc. for cleani g on stay there.
Linen not good, beds OK but maybe a 5' needed? Sticky work stair rail and overflow in bathroom needed a good clean. Some bulbs out and need replacing. No recycling bin to be found at all!!!

OK but could do with a bit of care and attention,watched 'cleaner' on other lets and she took minutes to clean after vacant.

Nice position etc and could be a good let.

Thank you for your review. I am pleased you liked the position of the properties and that also hope your many family, and friends who visited you also like the position. I would like to address the comment on the cleaners only taking minutes to clean a property, We have a method plan of which the cleaners adhere to, and it is impossible for 2 cleaners to clean a 3 bedroom property in less than 2 hours. It takes 30 minutes to make all the beds and a least 30 minutes to clean a kitchen. What the cleaners may do is use a vacant properties washing machine or just strip the beds. There would be an explanation for such a short period in a property. On arrival I always ask guests to contact me should they have a problem, you did not have a dustpan and brush, this was replaced within an hour. Nothing else was mentioned. if light bulbs etc had gone whilst you were there these would of been replaced if you let me know. With regards to recycling. We had separate bins for recycling, then the refuse men stopped taking them because guests were not doing this correctly. This meant I was left with full bins for weeks on end.. I had to cancel this collection and pay for extra general waste bins to solve the problem. I cannot control what guests put in each bin.

This was our third year of staying here & once again it was excellent. Everything was there that was needed for a young family with a baby. It's like home away from home. Clean & tidy. Plenty of towels provided.
There is plenty to do within a 5-10 minute drive to Stratford.
Look forward to staying there again in the future.
